Fracture announced

Lucasarts announced last night the future release mid 2008 of Fracture on Xbox 360 and PS3. Developed by Day 1 Studios, well known for the Mechassault series, it's an action game where the main twist is a weapon called Fracture that allows the player to change the terrain. First screens a shamelessly stolen trailer inside.

Been waiting for real destructible terrain since Red Faction. This looks to be very promising.

Looks pretty impressive....

Looks very interesting. Anyone remember the game Magic Carpet? :) It's been a while since I've seen any terrain deformation.
Commented on 2007-05-03 11:09:54
WOW, that was a unique idea
Commented on 2007-05-03 11:16:09

Man!! Magic Carpet, that game was so cool, loved it so much! It was one of the most creative and inovative games i ever played, would love to see a next-gen remake!!
Was awsome creating mountains and volcanos everywhere, or digging craters and rifs...

Oh, the sour taste of nostalgia! http://youtube.com/watch?v=phuWDJPRhVY i remember every second of this lol.
Who thinks this water looks better than bioshock's? =P and this was 14 years ago

Ohh that looks interesting! gonna keep my eye on this one, the effects/physics look stunning.
Commented on 2007-05-03 13:18:42
Now that's innovative. And sure looks like alot of fun. :D

Could you imagine multiplayer on this? That would be insane...
Commented on 2007-05-03 13:32:14
Looks like it could be called Cellfactor 2.

A very cool concept just like Portal. It's great to see the Shooter genre involving more strategy than just run-and-gun..

Generovision! TM

Still, the gameplay looks interesting.

interesting concept, although the actual gamply still looks very generic. and even though it is more a tech demo then anything, the trailer was pretty poor, especially the animation. but i supose it was more to show that the terrain deformed (although a lot of it still looked scripted, unlike geo-mod in red faction which had full environmental destrution)

it could end up being good, or it could be a bit mediocre, as it stands, its an interesting little bit of technology.

KORNdog, those deformations don't look scripted to me. It's just how those guns work I guess, just aim on the ground and you send a shockwave which deformes the whole ground.

Those granades however, look mighty astonishing.
Commented on 2007-05-03 16:10:49
nice concept
Commented on 2007-05-03 16:14:11
looks crazyly good fun,never heard of this game before,cant wait role on 2008
Commented on 2007-05-03 16:52:13
holy crap that looks pretty damn good, fun idea

multi might be interesting tho
Commented on 2007-05-03 17:35:43
cool concept.. bad delivery
Commented on 2007-05-03 17:57:07
Deformation looks great.
Commented on 2007-05-03 18:32:07
This is going to be a amazing multiplayer game. Remember what I said.
Commented on 2007-05-03 19:55:56
Wow. Those effects were pretty cool.

Though i can't help but feel it will end up having fairly generic environments with this.
Commented on 2007-05-03 22:01:57
looks pretty cool
Commented on 2007-05-03 23:17:36
The trailer is cool, but i wish they would show off Star Wars Force Unleashed instead. Im way more interested in that game.
Commented on 2007-05-03 23:36:52
Wow a half-original idea in an FPS! That's exactly half more than the rest can come up with. I like.
